Description & Analysis

In 1902, the Mint changed the way in which it prepared proof coinage dies. The new process removed much of the frost which was usually found on proof coins. This change was not popular and lasted only a few years. However, because of this change, 1902 proof coins are extremely hard to find with any cameo contrast at all. However, the quarter eagle issue for this year tends to come frostier than most of the other denominations.
